If you are a future or returning teacher searching for an accredited teaching program see accredited programs of initial teacher education.
To ensure that future teachers in NSW schools have the knowledge, understanding, skills and values needed to improve student outcomes, all NSW initial teacher education programs have to meet minimum standards. Programs are assessed through a rigorous process managed by the Board of Studies, Teaching and Educational Standards (BOSTES). Program accreditation is approved by the Minister for Education.
The Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in NSW: Policy and Procedures (PDF: 558 KB) describes the accreditation process. Programs are assessed by Accreditation Panels overseen by the BOSTES Initial Teacher Education Committee in relation to meeting the Program Standards as described in Accreditation of Initial Teacher Education Programs in Australia – Standards and Procedures (PDF: 261.84 KB) and the requirements of NSW Supplementary Documentation (PDF: 703 KB).
Program accreditation is for up to 5 years with graduates eligible for Provisional Accreditation to teach in NSW schools.
Programs marked Pending Accreditation are currently undergoing the accreditation process. See previously accredited programs that are no longer accepting new enrolments.
